Fast-Track Evaluation of Cloud-Based Workstations

Fast-Track Evaluation of Cloud-Based Workstations

Evaluate the potential of cloud-based remote workstations with minimal effort. An Intel-led collaboration offers turnkey proofs of concept based on purpose-built infrastructure. Work on 3D graphics from anywhere, with all data and applications hosted in secure data centers.

State-of-the-art remote workstation experiences are now possible on any device, using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) hosted on the Intel® Xeon® processor E3 v5 family with Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics. Intel's on-chip graphics technology powers a broad range of workstation-class applications for engineers, designers, and architects.

Simple access is now available to companies of all types and sizes, on a trial basis and beyond. Leverage the capabilities of remote workstations with support provided by IMSCAD, a global consultant in graphics virtualization technology.

Intel

Remote workstations in the cloud, made simple

This production-ready environment draws on a four-way collaboration to deliver remote, workstation-class visual experiences from the cloud that meet the needs of the most demanding users. Available applications include Autodesk Inventor*, Revit*, Civil 3D*, and AutoCAD*, as well as Solidworks* 3D CAD software. Other software applications can be set up by request.

  • Intel provides the architectural heart of the solution, including the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1500 v5 product family with integrated Intel® Iris™ Pro graphics P580.
  • PhoenixNAP global data centers host the systems, applications, and data that drive the remote workstation visual experiences for end customers.
  • Citrix XenServer* is the first commercial hypervisor to support Intel® Graphics Virtualization Technology (Intel® GVT) capabilities to share graphics processors among collaborators.
  • IMSCAD provides tools, expertise, and metrics that help customers optimize the solution to their individual needs and gauge its success in meeting those needs.

INTEL® XEON® PROCESSOR E3-1500 V5 PRODUCT FAMILY: INNOVATIONS FOR REMOTE WORKSTATIONS

Intel® Iris™ Pro Graphics P580Accelerates remote workstation workloads with up to 1.26x the graphics performance of the prior generation1

Intel® Graphics Virtualization Technologies (Intel® GVT)Tailors visual experience by dedicating each processor to a single user or sharing them among user groups

Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel® AVX2)Accelerates vector- and integer-based imaging, video editing, modeling, and simulation applications
